While the physical effort here certainly was unremarkable (*especially* for these two), you have to question the creative process in NXT that led to babyface Roddy taking on rudo Almas.
Roddy is a fantastic base for high flyers. Almas is an incredible high flyer. How do you not recognize the potential for greatness there and then build accordingly? Life is not that hard.
Anyway, the match was FINE of course. Almas kind of targeted the arm and was just generally in control for a while. Roddy endured and made a quick two-move comeback basically to put Almas away. This was really missing the spark that you would expect these two have though. (**1/2)
